Truffle Festival in Gubbio

October 28, 2022 @ 8:00 am - November 1, 2022 @ 5:00 pm

 

Seven HGTA members spent an eventful weekend in Gubbio to celebrate with them as they enjoyed the annual truffle festival. Led by Brian Perrett, Chair of the HGTA sub-committee for Gubbio, they were greeted by Matilde Lo Gatto and other members of the Associazione Gubbio Gemellaggi in the hall of the Piazza della Signoria.

  

Over the weekend, the Italian and British teams shared a stall at the truffle market, promoting Huntingdon and Godmanchester to local visitors.

Here are a few images of some of the many colourful truffle-related stalls:

The well-known Italian TV chef Anna Moroni visited the stall, and the HGTA groups were later treated to a cookery lesson by chefs Max Mariola and Ruben.

     

     

On the final evening, the Associazione organised an English-style cheese and wine party with Italian overtones – and karaoke – in the magnificent Biblioteca Sperelliana.

       

Members of the HGTA delegation were also able to visit the Church of Santa Maria della Vittoria, which is the site of the origin of the story of St. Francis and the Wolf of Gubbio. The church dates its construction back to the year 853, and it was later given to St. Francis of Assisi, who was living in Gubbio in the early 13th century. The very fine frescoes date from the 15th century.
